Format: Paperback
The significance of this book is not in its content as such - nowadays there are thousands of 'how to' books on the subject of Wicca. The books of Gerald Gardner (Witchcraft Today and The Meaning of Witchcraft) were the first on the subject and the start of the modern Pagan tradition. You need to remember that the Witchcraft Act had only recently been repealed when this was published. What Gerald Gardner did in introducing this subject was brave and controversial, but by doing it, he essentially gave birth to modern Paganism as we know it in the UK. Wicca is now a recognised religion which has spread internationally over the last 70 years, and it started here. I found this an utterly fascinating read, which captivated and inspired me to research more.

Gerald is such a fascinating man and he writes very well - the book is easy to digest and you feel as though he's speaking directly to you. The only thing I want to criticise is the fact that there are no footnotes so he could really just be saying anything at some points, especially when he's telling us about other countries' traditions and rituals. But still, this is a brilliant slice of history and well worth buying.

Format: Paperback
This book is very hard going, especially in terms of layout and the writing style of Gerald Gardner. From an historical point of view, it makes very interesting reading on the history of witchcraft throughout the ages, however most of this book's content is extremely vague. There is no step by step instruction, instead the reader is told that there is "something there", but is not told what that actually is. The author explains this away by stating that he was sworn to secrecy by the covens he observed, but this of course is of no use to the reader or student of the Craft. What's the point of writing a non-fiction book about a particular subject and then saying you can't actually disclose anything about it??
In summary, I found the historical information provided here interesting, but if you want to learn the actual ways of witchcraft and Wicca, look elsewhere.
